It takes a lot more than causing soup to come to life to make a terraformed planet. This ain't the Genesis Device we're talking about. It's primordial lightning.


Not quite. It's an automated Scarlet Witch at the height of her pre-M-Day power levels, when she could make all the oxygen molecules "randomly" evacuate the space around a fire. Blackfoot's biggest problem is going to be "aiming" probability. Could it cause a bunch of random chemicals to develop into single-celled or even multi-celled life forms? Yep! It could also turn the whole mess into chocolate frosting, or rubber cement, or edible varnish. And even that's assuming it doesn't just rip a hole in spacetime and swallow its own tail like Ourobouros. As it is, he's trying to stack the deck by using the classic Urey-Miller setup on a planetary scale, in hopes of achieving his objective at a probability higher than "spontaneously disintegrate random object within range".
